Improving ehealth

Improving ehealth



eHealth is the use of information and communication technologies to support health and healthcare. It is also a school of thought about connectivity, social participation and networked innovation. Policy makers, health care professionals, patients, insurers, researchers and citizens alike, believe that eHealth will contribute to the solution of todays health issues and to the innovation of health care systems. In this book, specialists from the Center for eHealth Research and Diseasemanagement (University of Twente) and the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) explain what needs to be done to increase the impact and uptake of eHealth interventions. They do so by treating a range of hot subjects such as human centered design, business modelling, persuasive technology and current trends at the intersection of health, social sciences and technology. These topics converge in a holistic approach to the development and design of successful eHealth technologies. `Improving eHealth is written for high school and university students, health professionals and all those interested in contemporary health care.

On the Trail of Ebola




Guido van der Groen

'Just give me a few viruses.' When young researcher Guido van der Groen went to his boss with that request in 1976, it marked the start of an improbable career as a virus hunter. A cheap thermos flask containing blood samples from a deceased Belgian missionary in Zaïre put him on the trail of a 'humdinger' of a virus: Ebola. In the autumn of 1976 he left for Africa with an international team to track down the deadly virus. With the recent devastating outbreak in West Africa, van der Groen meets his old enemy and 'mistress' again after forty years. On the Trail of Ebola tells the exciting life story of a celebrated researcher and the dangerous viruses that lurk everywhere. It's a story of brilliant science in sometimes abominable circumstances, of lurching between misery and hope, between fierce criticism and disarming humour. A unique document for anyone wishing to gain insight into viruses and the mass hysteria they can cause.

Sleep without back pain




Pascal Mannekens

This book will improve your chances of a good night's sleep We are spending about a third of our lives sleeping. Yet many people fail to pay enough attention to the importance of a good sleeping environment. A good night's sleep and sleeping position may prevent many problems. Around 8 out of 10 people suffer from severe back pain at least once in their lifetime. Nearly 10 percent of them also develop chronic back pain. A poor night's sleep or a substandard bed is often the greatest contributing factor to this problem. Sleep without back pain helps you to reduce the risk of back pain to a minimum and provides answers to key questions such as: - What are they key factors to consider when buying a bed? - What is the best sleeping position? - How can you tell whether your mattress needs to be replaced? - Which sleep system is best suited to your sleeping profile? - How do you ensure that you and your partner don't feel either too hot or too cold? After reading this book, you will know as much (or even more) about your back and sleep hygiene as your physical therapist or your general practitioner does.
